For sale is a 1955 Oval Window Beetle - 3 fold rag/sunroof. A copy of the birth certificate is included for validation.
She is super solid and has all original metal & paint with some patina. No rust and no indication of repairs. Its in amazing shape and ticks all the right boxes. Its all correct : 4 tab, w decklid, tube fender, dimple rear fenders, correct 'H' and 4 finger aprons, ribbed doors etc. Unlike a lot of early cars this hasn't suffered from 'improvements' over the years. There are a few dings such as the crease on passenger front fender, but no damage to quarter or aprons anywhere. The pictures do the talking, so please take a close look.
She is a nice driver with mechanicals sorted and refreshed. 6volt with 36hp engine. Lots of tune up work with rebuilt carb, fuel pump and intake recently installed (all from Ed Falls) Orig splitcase trans which works well, but pops 3rd occasionally. I have a newly rebuilt split case trans with axels, all work done by Bill Vallis at Vallis Motorsports Canada. Available for sale/negotiable with purchase of car.
I had my service done by VdubEngineering over the years I've had the car which have included brake refresh (lines, master, slave cylinders etc) rebuilt 6v generator, brand new battery, above mentioned engine parts, tune ups and some electrical sorting.
The interior was done by previous owner so its relatively fresh. The sunroof works but could use a refresh, I have a 3 fold rebuild kit from Grumpys but havent done it yet..will include with sale. Suspension is 4" beam (KCW) with dropped spindles and adjusted springplates. Also will include a pair of low mileage 165R 15, radial white wall tires which match the front set up. If you have any additional questions feel free to email or call.
